Reminds me of a certain Hospital group that decided to block gambling sites.
Turns out the system blocked both the internal and external sites of the hospital whenever Charity Lotto or some other Hospital site contains the word "Lotto". Instead of giving up, managment decided to just go manual and directly block gambling sites.
So now, the users cannot access lotto.com or whatever deemed inappropate site by management. However, you can still access through third party sites or e-mail directly. Or heck, you even call them. Just pointless waste of money.
